Vôlei UM Itapetininga staged a surprise, beat Sada Cruzeiro, and took the lead in the quarterfinal series of the 2020/21 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship playoffs.



In the first match of the playoff quarterfinals of the 2020/21 Brazilian Women’s Superliga Banco do Brasil, the 6-time national champions Cruzeiro didn’t repeat an impeccable performance from the regular season, which they won.

Even though they barely made it to the playoffs (8th-seed), Itapetininga dominated the famous opponents: 3-0 (25-17, 25-22, 25-22). Renan Buiatti led the way of Itapetininga to a victory with 16 points. Johan Marengoni set up 4 blocks, while Guilherme Emina ‘Guiga’ made 77 % reception (13 digs, 1 error, 46 % excellent). The next duel in the best-of-3 series is scheduled for March 17.
